Hi All,

+1 to release.

Following are my observation when I tested http://orac.ece.utexas.edu/pub/svn/1.5.0-rc3/bastrop-pine/subversion-1.5.0-rc3.tar.bz2

make check [fsfs, bdb] - All tests pass.
make svnserveautocheck [fsfs, bdb] - All tests pass, but tests took longggggg time to complete.
This svnserve test alone took 5+ hours in my box. FYI, I used to see this behaviour some
time in the past but things started working fast after that. I observed this slowness in RC2.
May be it could be my new system issue(I did not see this vague slowness in RC1 testing from my office

make davautocheck [fsfs, bdb] * [neon] - All tests pass.

make davautocheck [fsfs, bdb] * [serf] - All tests pass except update_tests-41 and merge_tests-4.

My new signature(from my home)

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)


With regards
Kamesh Jayachandran

Subject: 1.5.0-rc3 up for signing/testing
Hoping that the third time is the charm, I'm pleased to announce that
Subversion 1.5.0-rc3 is up for testing and signing. The magic revision
is r30562.


As usual, signatures from full committers back to me, and enthusiastic
tester feedback is welcome. At this point, this candidate is not yet
blessed for wide release, so please don't make it available to people
not interested in test-driving the new release.

Distro package maintainers, please do NOT include any pre-release
builds, even blessed, into operating system distros. The reasons for
not doing so were very eloquently outlined by Karl in a mail, which is
summarized at the above address.

The quick version is: we don't guarantee compatibility between the
pre-releases and the final release, so if people install the release
candidate, all their repositories and working copies might break
unrepairably when they upgrade to 1.5.0 proper. We don't want that kind
of bad publicity, and neither do you.

Happy testing!
